Self-determination, sex and visibility - and why you're not as tolerant as you think
Jochen Schropp is an actor, presenter - and gay. That shouldn't be a big deal these days, and yet his public outing in 2018 made waves. Jochen went looking for clues and confronted the questions and prejudices of that time.
“Do you still have to come out?”, “Why do you have to make such a fuss about your sexuality?”, “Where does homophobia start and how do I react to it?”, “And what role does heteronormative society play?”
Jochen was supported in his book by qualified psychologist Miriam Junge. This gave rise to discussions and food for thought around the topics of coming out, identity, discrimination, visibility, sex and clichés. “Queer as f*ck” takes people by the hand as they search for their place in the world, while it holds a mirror up to others.
In his reading, Jochen Schropp tells his story and provides insights into topics such as: What is true about the idea of a tolerant Germany? What conflicts do queer people face and what debates have long been outdated? And what can everyone contribute to living the ideal of a diverse and open society?
